“I believe that as people we all wish to be happy, healthy and free of suffering and the most important way to achieve this is in the presence of others. To feel safe, witnessed, heard, and accepted is the basis of human relationships. To create this solid foundation, we also need to connect to ourselves in a meaningful and authentic way.”
